Thinking of spring clothing,and actually making something!
Close up of fabric. I have had this fabric forever, and we finally found a dress that would suit it.
Last year I saw a dress at Anthropologie that looked just like this one, and I had remembered that I had this pattern. I meant to make it last year,but never got around to it. Better late than never I guess.
Caitlin wanted it much shorter than what the pattern was, so we used the view with the extra panel on the bottom, cut it there and then hemmed it instead of adding the panel. I think it made it look much more youthful. Caitlin had the crinoline slip already, and I think it looks so cute with it.
Detail of the top. Caitlin took more photos of herself in it at her blog: Feather.
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. I'm off to start on a spring top for myself.....I will only post it if it looks good on me, so if you don't see it........Well, then it just ended up in Goodwill.
